Councillor Profile

My wife and I moved in 1976 from Yorkshire to Upper Cam, and brought up our children and foster-children there. Apart from a year living temporarily in Scotland (2007-08), we have been based in Dursley/Cam ever since.

I taught at Cam House School (now Peak Academy) between 1976 and 1982 before retraining in social work and working for Glos County Council until 2007, including a period between 1989 and 1993 based at the Dursley office. Latterly I worked with a training and consultancy business (KCA) founded by my wife Kate, with current offices in Drake House on the former Lister site. I continue to work part-time, as a Consultant with KCA, as an Independent Member of a Fostering Panel, and as a Tribunal specialist lay member in the Mental Health Review and Care Standards Tribunals. I feel that the skills gained in the course of my employment are very transferable to the role of Town Councillor.

I now have the time to take a greater interest in the affairs and development of the delightful area which has been my home base for almost 40 years and remains an excellent place to bring up a family and live healthily. My interests in the locality would centre on environmental concerns, availability of suitable housing for people at all ages and stages of life, sustainable local business development, infrastructure and services, cultural and recreational opportunities, and issues of disability access.
